Weird Alternate Universe

Weird Alternate Universe

When I turned away from the mirror door
I ran labyrinth of empty book shelves
into a weird alternate universe
where I was a world-renowned professor
working at Harvard University
named Doctor Renard Leonus Sjoberg
married to a famous Korean singer
but I was so busy researching tropes
in narrative folk tales of Java Island
that I never wrote my long epic poem
describing lives of Greek philosophers,
so I danced with joy in cool misty dawn
when I woke up by a green lake in Georgia
and found that I was nobody again.
